I'd feel rather awkward about my therapist asking me to come in, whether than vice versa, when I'd be paying. If you think you would benefit from coming in again, that's fine. If she thinks this insight and understanding is so important that she's willing to share it at her cost, that's also fine. But if you feel like you're finished, I don't think there's anything wrong with saying you appreciate her thinking of you but you've thought about what you discussed and you don't feel further therapy is necessary at this point.

It is a bit of a cliffhanger though, isn't it? I'd be itching to find out what she was thinking.

You know, this sort of makes me think about something from my own therapeutic past. When I used to quit periodically, I'd always be upset that my therapist would let me go after a final session and not contact me further. But I can see his dilemma. Even if he didn't think I was ready to quit, and even if he didn't think it was in my best interests, after he tried to convince me of that in the final session it would be awkward for him to call and invite me to pay him more.
